I'm hoping for a good ending since only 4 days ago I had 5 that were healthy and I had to go on a trip somewhere bright them with me and used hand warmers to keep temp. They got to hot and I killed them all but this one so I'm praying I get him to hatch. We will see

You have my prayers too!

No prob on the other pic... looks like it was really close... got fl.gif for your last one... you can wait on upping the humidity til it internally pips...

So I should stand it upright like this pic or lay it on its side with the dip side up?

That's not unusual it's 35-37 days actually. And most of us have learned ducklings don't use a calendar anyway  ;)

Thank you for the update.  It seems like the saying should be "watched eggs never hatch" instead of "watched pot never boils".  Hopefully you will get some action soon. :fl
